The combination of my love of spicy food and a year-long craving for cabbage (is that odd!?) birthed this goofy-named salad. It is a combination of cilantro and cole slaw, thus “Slaw-Rantro”. I know, it falls flat. If anyone wants to come up with a snappier name, I’d be much obliged (although I doubt my family could stop calling it by its current name, we’ve grown rather fond of it). The following recipe is not exact…I’m an eye-baller, so make yours to taste.
1/4 c. (or more) olive oil
juice of 2 limes (can substitute white vinegar)
Lowry’s seasoned salt to taste
2 garlic cloves
huge handful of cilantro
1 jalapeno, top 1/4 near stem chopped off
Blend in food processor. I think it might also work in a blender, but I’ve never tried. Pour into a bowl. Note: I always blend it first without the jalapeno and pour a little off to mix up for the kids.
1 sm. head cabbage, shredded or chopped in food processor (I don’t wipe out the bowl after making the dressing, yum!)
1-2 green onions, sliced (optional)
Toss cabbage and green onions with dressing in the bowl.
My husband loves this salad and he normally won’t touch cole slaw. Two of my four children love it, too.
